I am a consultant and researcher at the multinational consulting firm &samhoud. At &samhoud I am responsible for all aspects regarding organizational analysis in the areas of employee and customer relations, organizational development, and multisource feedback. I advise clients on the implementation and follow-up of organizational analysis. I have helped over 50 organizations spanning all sectors, SMEs as well as multinationals. I have extensive experience as project manager of large scale research projects. Additionally, I contribute to the knowledge development at &samhoud on a diversity of topics such as sustainable value creation, connection and performance, leadership, and personal vision.
At IWP and the Management School I take an active interest in ongoing research and education and aim to actively contribute to the future success of the school. I am available for research collaborations related to my work and workshops regarding consulting practice and personal vision. Students can contact me for any questions regarding consulting practice and career choices. Also we regularly have opportunities for students or recent graduates who are looking to gain some experience at a consulting company.
